Wild Blueberries are a well known source of antioxidants like anthocyanins; vitamin C, B complex, E and A; copper, selenium, manganese, zinc, dietary fiber, iron. Recently, researchers at Tufts University analyzed 60 fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability. Wildcrafted Blueberries graced the top of the list, rating highest in their capacity to possibly destroy free radicals. Our Raw Organic Blueberry Juice Powder concentrates all this natural nutrition in an easy to use, delicious form.
Blueberry Juice Powder contain substances that have strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals which are unstable molecules linked to the development of a number of diseases including division of mutated cells, cardiovascular disease and other age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s. According to the USDA database of the antioxidant activity of selected foods (ORAC values), blueberries rank among the highest on a per serving basis. Polyphenols, specifically anthocyanins, give blueberries their blue hue and are the major contributors to the antioxidant activity of the fruit.
Wild Blueberry, like its relative the cranberry, might help prevent bladder problems by stopping bacteria from attaching to the walls of the bladder. Blueberry fruit is also high in fiber which could help normal digestive function.
In laboratory animal studies, researchers have found that blueberries help support the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age related conditions. Researchers found that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills of aging animals, making them mentally equivalent to much younger ones.
Phytonutrients called anthocyanidins in blueberries may support the body’s ability to neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues that can lead to a multitude of conditions. Anthocyanins, the blue-red pigments found in blueberries, may also the integrity of the structures in the veins and entire vascular system. Anthocyanins have been shown to possibly support the effects of vitamin C, support capillary integrity, and possibly stabilize the collagen matrix (the ground substance of all body tissues). They work their protective magic by preventing free-radical damage, inhibiting enzymes from cleaving the collagen matrix, and directly cross-linking with collagen fibers to form a more stable collagen matrix.
